Warriors, Cavaliers working on fourth NBA finals in a row

Durant, an eight-time All-Star who only needed a ring to cement his superstar status, scored 39 points in a championship-clinching 129-120 victory and averaged 35.2 points and 8.4 rebounds in these Finals.

Kevin Durant not only brought home an NBA Championship title for folks in Oakland, he also showed love to his D.C. area fans after Monday's game.

The New England Patriots visited Trump in April after winning the Super Bowl earlier in the year, with more than 20 players skipping the trip including quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady.

Stephen Curry was still smiling and laughing about Golden State's second National Basketball Association title in three seasons when he made it clear the Warriors think they are just getting started hoisting trophies.

The Warriors' statement comes less than 24 hours after Clemson visited the White House to honor a national championship win against Alabama in January, in which President Trump said the Tigers "won a championship game for the ages".

"I remember the first day of camp and I walk into camp, and I didn't know what to expect, I didn't know what these guys were like on the court", Durant told reporters after the game.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time, ending with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. In his lone season with the team, Durant said it's the selflessness that stands out to him.

On Wednesday during exit interviews, Kevin Durant dismissed the notion that the Golden State Warriors are constructed as a superteam. Draymond, nobody wanted him. "The toughest challenge was to come in here and see how I can help this team get better", Durant said.

The parade ended on the shores of Lake Merritt where coach Steve Kerr and the players addressed the crowd during an 80-minute rally. He can score, has great court vision, defends and maybe more than anything else, is everything you want in a leader.

"Frankly, I think it's why Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard", Kerr said in an interview. Irving commented on the Warriors and their rivalry saying, "They beat us, but I'm pretty sure we'll be back and we'll be ready to battle again". He scored 41 points in game five and averaged a triple-double for the Finals.
